This week (4th – 10th April 2022) is Community Garden Week, which takes the opportunity to celebrate schools and community gardens nationwide.
Community Gardens have huge benefits – both socially and environmentally. It has been proven time and time again that being outdoors – even for short periods of time – is incredibly beneficial to our mental health. Our Community Garden is a safe space to come and meet others, get involved in planting, maintaining the space, and harvesting crops!
From an environmental point of view, Community Gardens are great for
- increasing biodiversity – especially in urban areas where biodiversity levels can be poor
- reducing food miles as the food grown tends not to be transported far from where it was harvested
- improving soil and air quality
With our Community Garden, we aim to bring people together to share knowledge, learn new skills and grow tasty, nutritious food for North East Fife Community Hub.
We are looking for more volunteers to help us with the garden; we have sessions twice per week:
Tuesday 10.30am – 12.30pm
Thursday 1.30pm – 3.30pm
If you would like to come along, get in touch for more information!
